We were on our way to Portland for tests for my husband--not a pleasure trip. We decided to spend the night before at the Gilbert Inn. We're so glad we did. Wonderful room, comfy, comfy chairs, great bed! Front desk staff was very helpful and welcoming. The only thing we wished for was a refrigerator in the room. We have... More

we're so happy with this inn & the price is very reasonable! It's very close to the main strip & to the beach, but it's also quiet. It's a very cozy, clean & comfortable place to stay :) wish we could've stayed longer! We would recommend this place to anyone!

This charming ten-ensuite house was built in 1892 only a block from Seaside Beach and a block from the main street -Broadway. This Inn is really not for children or those with disabilities. While they have a few rooms on the first floor, most are up two flights of stairs. The rooms are comfortable and cheery with large overstuffed chairs,... More

My husband and I were very excited to visit Seaside and stay in an historic inn. The gardens to the Gilbert Inn were lovely. The reception area was lovely. The nice lady who checked us in, from Charleston SC was lovely. Our room was...bijoux. That's okay, we did not expect the Ritz. It was adequate and clean. The walls and... More

Well appointed room ( we were upstairs in the north/added wing). Noise was no worse than one would expect in this location, and we kept the windows open. Yes, the bathroom is a bit tight if that is important to you, but I prefer having the space in the bedroom as sitting area, and our room (#5) offered plenty of... More

We stayed two nights in this very clean, very well-maintained Victorian close to the promenade. The bedroom was quite small (typical of this age of construction), but the bathroom largish. Lights in the bedroom were a bit too dim for comfortable reading. No minifridge, but there is ice available in the sister facility across the street.

The Gilbert Inn in Seaside Oregon was a beautiful home from the late 1800's. The front desk staff were all very friendly and the lobby and our room was very clean and well kept. There was complimentary home cooked cookies and fresh fruit in the lobby and free DVD's to check out at the front desk. The yard was beautiful... More

My husband and I enjoyed two evenings here. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms nicely decorated and immaculately clean, and the price very reasonable. We had a deluxe queen room and found the bed excellent and the room spacious. We will definitely return again.
